Crypto, the lead character, is a funny alien. His bad-ass attitude compliments his taste for destruction, human brains and general carnage. His previous games were innovative, funny and enjoyable. Unfortunately though, Cryto's lost his mojo.
In Big Williy Unleashed, Crypto must help stop rebels from exposing Pox, Crypto's superior and mentor, who has got into the fast food business, selling the meat of murdered humans to unsuspecting customers in his thriving establishment, The Big Willy restaurant.
You're set free into an open-world urban environment in which you complete objectives for Pox, while killing humans and fighting off police retaliation. It's a sort of wacky take on Grand Theft Auto.
The controls find any excuse to use the Remote, regardless of whether it's beneficial to do so. You move Crypto with the Nunchuk, while guiding the camera with the pointer. You can grab people and objects with Crypto's mind powers and throw them with a lunging gesture on the Remote. You tilt the Remote to steer Cryto's flying saucer, but you'd have an easier time steering a car with a wind sail.

That's not all. Yet again Wii owners are faced with a third-party developer that's put no effort whatsoever into the visual side of things. The game boasts the most basic and dull pallet of pastel colours we've seen on the Wii, and the textures are so low-res and blurry it's almost funny.
The whole game just feels so cheap and nasty that it's almost insulting. It seems that all production values were lost in the crossover to Locomotive Games from the series' previous developers, Pandemic Studios. This really isn't worth any of your time or money.
